82 GLADSTONE RD, PARNELL
Rosie strikes the perfect balance of just about everything — sharp, friendly waitstaff, a relaxed buzz in smart surrounds and chef Mike de Vries’ menu packs in plenty of wholesomeness built around good-quality filling proteins. Much of the produce used comes from Hipgroup’s own farm, and meat is butchered at their Matua Valley site, so they offer interesting cuts you won’t readily find elsewhere, as well as their own charcuterie.
BEST FOR: Spring lunch followed by a fragrant walk through the Rose Gardens across the road. Allpress coffee
